#SupportWHRDs for #16Days 2020

Submitted by on – No Comment

Government crackdown against women human rights defenders (WHRDs) in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region has consistently intensified during 2020. Governments have systematically restricted civic space & shut down organizations, and they’re increasingly targeting the few remaining activists with terrorism & security charges. As such, WHRDs have systematically faced government harassment, smear campaigns, detention, arrest, lengthy prison sentences, torture and even assassinations.

For the 16 Days of Activism to violence against women, CSBR joins FEMENA, WHRD-MENA Coalition, DAWN-Mena, AWID, Human Rights Watch, and the International Service for Human Rights, to launch a campaign to raise awareness of the situation of women human rights defenders across Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey.

Follow us along on social media and help amplify our call. Together we can #SupportWHRDs!
